    Its kind of the exact same situation though isnt it. You want rid of foreign players when most of our success has come with foreign players in the side. Im sure you still wish we were non league at times.

    And what exactly about the england squad are we improving? The 17s 19s and 21s have all recently won the euros or world championships and the senior team have reached the last 4 in the world cup and the last 4 in the nations league which puts them in a strong position for the euros in 2020 with an average age in the team of 23.

    If a team has three or more England internationals picked for a game, then okay, that club should be able to postpone a game.
    Postponing games because foreign nationals are picked for their country should not be permitted. Squads are big enough these days, and if it had an impact on teams being below par, it might just make them put more effort into producing English players instead of buying all all the foreign players.

    I seem to recall Latics calling a game off last season after their 3rd choice goalkeeper had been picked for Wales U21s.[/quote]
    I know and totally wrong. Not sure but that may have been the one to give the squad a break where some players had an early season holiday.[/quote]

    Aye. And a lot of good that did us

    Not really but I just find these international breaks so ridiculous. For a friendly against USA. Nice winning most weeks last season though.

    Not forgetting we play Croatia today in a game that could see us winning our Nations league group or getting relegated. Of no importance whatsoever todays game. What I don’t agree with is the days international games are now played on. Only in finals would England play Thursday and Sunday but now its any day any time and it does my swede in.[/quote]
    How does England playing Croatia affect a Latics game today when we and our potential opponents in a league game don’t have players in the England squad?[/quote]

    All these international breaks are for a reason and league games are planned around the Fifa designated dates. While Latics don’t have anyone in the England squad many championship players will be away on international duty all around the globe. It makes it easier for everyone to have these breaks and to me it makes perfect sense. Clubs and players know all they need to know and can plan for the long journeys.

    Had to read through quite a few posts before I came to the most sensible one on the subject. Maybe I’m being a bit greedy here but don’t people not think that the current international break gives the club a chance on the injury front? How do people think that Brexit will affect things? Maybe it will be harder to buy players with EU clubs?? Some here could get their wish and have an all English team and you can sing ‘rule britannia’ from the terraces ;) ;)

    I’ve actually enjoyed the break because let’s face it, it’s been pretty shit lately. I reckon Cook has about 3 games to stop the rot before talk of the sack starts to spread!

    Utter nonsense, and a big problem in the game at the moment.

    I’m not saying that I condone it but it could become a real situation!
